Allison Jack

Ambassador of St. Louis, MO Branch

My four year old daughter and I have been Hike it Baby members since 2016 when we went on our first (very snowy!) hike with Hike it Baby Boston. We hosted a recurring toddler led hike at a historical farm before we relocated to St. Louis in 2018. Knowing that there was a branch in St. Louis made our transition to a new community much easier and we started hosting weekend hikes for Hike it Baby St. Louis to explore our new surroundings and make new friends on the trail. We currently host a recurring weekend hike at Powder Valley and try to get out to the Nature Explore Classroom at Shaw Nature Reserve once a month. We are all weather hikers and love to see wildlife, catch tadpoles and find cool mushrooms along the trail that we “enjoy with our eyes”. When we’re not hosting hikes, I am a scientist at an agtech start up in St. Louis, K is a student at the Zoo Preschool and we are both members of the Mid-County YMCA.
